Our Roaster’s Choice for December was actually a subscriber’s choice! To finish off a year of great coffees, we asked our coffee subscribers to choose our final offering. Entre Rios from the farm of Aquiares Estate won the vote and we’re ending 2023 with a coffee from one of our favourite farms.

Aquiares, one of Costa Rica’s largest and most historic coffee farms, sits high on the fertile slopes of Turrialba Volcano. Producing coffee continuously for over a century, the farm has developed an enduring model for growing high-quality Arabica coffee, protecting a stunning natural setting, and supporting a thriving local community of 1,800 people.

Expect a boozy, fruit forward cup with flavours of grape, pineapple and a candy floss finish.
